Duomo - Florence

During our recent visit to Italy, we also spent some time in Florence. I caught this view of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo) from the Campanile early one morning. The stairs to the top of the Campanile were quite steep and there were a lot of them, but it was worth the climb!

 

The building of the Duomo began in 1296 and was completed in 1436. The dome was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi.
